In recent years the use of insecticides has become such an everyday feature of modern agriculture that it is difficult to imagine the husbanding of crops and stock without the aid of chemical dusts and sprays. It is not long ago, however, that something more akin to black magic than science was depended upon to protect agricultural products, with results that left much to be desired.
